We did that 40 years ago on the neighbors farm, as it goes down the hill faster it starts bouncing it was hard to hit. We used to wire a piece of plywood in the center to tell if you hit it.

We did that as well when we were younger. I can't help but think that it made me a better shot.

next time you see a deer rolling down the hill inside a tire all that practice will pay off

Re: Deer Shooting Practice--Rolling Tire !

IMO Running shots in PA are made by the dangerous lead slingers who empty their mags - oftentimes with no regard for what lies behind the deer they are slinging lead at...

Glad I don't hunt near any of them.

Re: Deer Shooting Practice--Rolling Tire !

I would much rather shoot at a rolling tire than go look for a friggin Pokemon. I guess I best not tell some of the things we used to do for entertainment or the bashers will be out in full force!

Re: Deer Shooting Practice--Rolling Tire !

rolling tire is excellent practice as long as its done in safe manner. i saw videos of bowhunters doing that too.

its great practice especially for deer drives during archery season. done right the deer are just trotting along, not racing at break neck speed.

dont let others tell you how to prepare for the season. just be safe in all we do.

I do something similar but with Lifesaver candies. Tough to tell if I hit them when I use the smaller calibers because I usually put the bullet through the hole.
